Ingredients

  • Lime wedges
  • Kosher salt for the glasses' rims
  • 1/2 cup juice from Mexican limóns or fresh limes
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Cointreau (orange-flavored liqueur)
  • 2 1/2-3 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 12 ice cubes

Preparation


1. Run a lime wedge around the edge of each glass. Then dip rims into a saucer filled with the salt.

2. Put the remaining ingredients into a blender; blend until the ice cubes are chipped and the mixture becomes frothy. Pour the mixture into the prepared glasses; garnish with lime.



    Prep: 20 minutes. Squeeze a big batch of lime juice so it's easy to refresh your drinks during commercial breaks.
  • Yield: Makes 2 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
